The doctor or nurse can visit patients who are seriously ill or who cannot leave the house. If you need a home visit, it is best to phone the surgery before 10.00a.m. Where possible, the doctor will speak to the patient over the phone before visiting or arranging for a emergency care practitioner(ECP) to see the patient.
Do please try to come to the surgery if at all possible. A doctor can see 3-5 patients at the surgery in the time it takes him/her to visit one patient at home.
Should you need to speak to the doctor you can telephone the surgery and the receptionist will record your request along with your contact details. The doctor will phone you on the same working day.
